Pleasure and the erotic in a time of emotional winter

Check out my new post on Southwestern College/New Earth Institute’s blog. There are still spaces open for the upcoming weekend intensive Erotic Intelligence and Pleasure Literacy.

Erotic Intelligence & Pleasure Literacy (3/4/22-3/6/22)

Because much traditional (abstinence only) sex education is associated with managing risk (pregnancy prevention, HIV) and discouraging sexual expression in young adulthood, there are often gaps in knowledge with regard to erotic intelligence. This course emphasizes helping clients to develop a more conscious, less shame-laden relationship to pleasure. This class will help clinicians to enhance their own sexual intelligence, learn about anatomy, physiology, sex toys and role-playing, as well as sex-positive ways to impart this kind of information to clients.

This is an online, synchronous weekend intensive class.

Dates (all Mountain Time Zone) : 3/4/22 from 6-9pm          

3/5/22 from 9am-5:30pm           

3/6/22 from 9am-5:30pm

Cost: $365.00
